  • converting cubic yards to tons

    Hello,
    I have been trying to convert 416 c.y.( of gravel) into tonage & I'm unsure if I have done this right and I'm lookiing for the correct answer.
    So far I have taken 150*150/9= 2500 s.y * .08= 200 tons but for some reason it doesn't seem right. Please help..

    Re: converting cubic yards to tons

    Gravel, loose, dry - 1.28 tons/cubic yard
    Gravel, w/sand, natural - 1.61 tons/cubic yard
    Gravel, dry 1/4 to 2 inch - 1.41 tons/cubic yard
    Gravel, wet 1/4 to 2 inch - 1.69 tons/cubic yard

    Depends on the type of gravel. I will show an example using loose dry gravel from the above list...

    416 cubic yards * 1.28 tons/cubic yard = 532.48 tons (U.S. short tons)

    Just replace the density with the correct density from the list, depending on the type of gravel.

          How close do you need to get? I can't give you accuracy as a guarantee, but looking at this:

          CAB is 1/4 or smaller, and since the 1/4 or smaller dry gravel is closest I would use 1.61 tons/cubic yard or:

          8100 * 1.61 = 13041 tons (U.S. short tons)

          My uncle, who isn't a genius, but has been running an industrial rock crusher for 10+ years, would figure it out in his head and laugh at us.

          Nothing like hands-on experience to teach you something!

              It varies with mix, but around 3900 lb (1.95 ton) per cubic yard

                    The density of wet snow vs. dry snow varies by a 10:1 ratio.
